    Stop staring at my watch!

    Wow, I just had a fascinating experience: I am writing a report for my job, and I am tired of writing at home, so I am sitting in my local Starbucks, wearing my SUB 200T. I glanced up at a guy in a white, long-sleeved shirt with his sleeves rolled up, walking out of the Starbucks, wearing a Rolex Submariner.
    No...wait...that isn't a Sub...what is it? Is that a Blancpain 50 Fathoms? Yeah, I think it is.
    So I'm staring at this guy's wrist, and I realize that he is staring at me. So, I’m thinking that he is wondering why this weird guy ingym shorts and a desert camouflage t-shirt is staring at him, and then Irealize that he isn’t staring at me: he’s staring at my wrist, at my Doxa.

    Groovy, baby!

    That's what I call confidence! Glad you are so positive about the reasons he was staring at you (considering what you were wearing!).

    Doxa people.

    I read once that a Doxa person is someone you can walk up to and ask about their watch.

    I tried that once. The only Doxa I have ever seen "in the wild" was at a local Burger King on the wrist of another guy. I complimented him on his Doxa. He kinda mumbled thanks and left hurriedly.

    I did have the jeweller who works with my wife once comment on my 12ooT Pro. Said he had an old one he picked up for 800 bucks and uses as his beach watch. A vintage model :o

    Said man probably mumbled: "Thanks. I hope that you are not going to be mugging me later." LOL.

    This is awesome - I'm envious, most people just walk on past and the few times I have noticed other people's watches, they simply respond with oh yeah, it's my watch or something like that.
